This doesn't really have anything to do with the bridge itself, it's a
limitation on the encoder. For all we know, the bridge might be able
to operate at the higher resolutions without any issues if the encoder
was able to.

Geeee, I forgot to send that one (and thought I did)... I'll send that
patch next week, but basically, I was creating a mode_valid hook at
the encoder level, and moving the RGB mode_valid hook from the
connector to the encoder (since it really is an encoder limitation).
